Wadi Dana Eco-camp is a joint venture between a group of local farmers and the Dana Cooperative. The camp provides employment and work experience opportunities for local people, and profits go back to the local community.
About 1 km from the Ottoman village of Dana in southern Jordan, the camp is set in a stunning mountain location overlooking Wadi Dana, Dana Nature Reserve, and Dana village. It is the perfect hideaway for hikers and lovers of nature.
The camp is working towards eco-status and has been created in a way that is sensitive to the natural environment and local heritage. This has allowed the land to remain within the families that have owned and protected it for centuries. There are 4 double rooms (en-suite), 2 triple rooms (en-suite), and 13 tents that sleep one or two persons (shared shower and toilet facilities). Each tent has mattresses, blankets/duvets, and pillows. The tents and rooms are furnished simply, but comfortably, and have views down through Dana village’s orchards and across to Wadi Dana. Breakfast is included in the tariff and a dinner of traditional Bedouin food is available to book. Lunch boxes are also bookable.
